Marketing is a tough game, especially when you lack proof reading skills or common sense. These typos are laugh worthy and a great reminder to check your work before it goes live!
Marketing copy errors abound
Hi, Friends. It probably doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone that the blooper reel is back with more gaffes than I have time to tripe. I mean type. Thanks to Jan Pastras and Patrick Martin of Los Angeles for their very funny (albeit pathetic) blooper submissions. I am beginning to think that proper spelling is hysterectomy…or whatever Siri just thought I said. Enjoy:
That’s Not What I Said
“Jazzmen trees” (That explains why Herbie Hancock is perched in my tree.)
“Feed the sand on your feet” (This must be the gourmet version of a sh_t sandwich.)
“Large fester” (Have you tried tetracycline and ProActive?)
“Steelers in kitchen” (Does Pittsburgh know they’re missing?)
Okay, I Said It, But I Didn’t Mean It
“Lots of fresh err” (“To err is human,” said Alexander Pope. “To forgive this idiocy is impossible,” say I.)
“Amazing parting” (Yelled the crowds as Moses took a bow.)
“Strep dawn living room” (Shouldn’t Dawn be under quarantine?)
“Drawing for Lackers tics” (That gaffe could get you a big bag o’ Kobe in your face!)
Am I Mumbling?
“Appliances in stall” (Hmm…I’m not sure how high the demand is for cow milking machines.)
“Sand-blasted gass” (Now THAT’S a serious intestinal problem!)
“Wood tooshes throught” (Who is the designer – Spanks?)
“Good nursing school nearby for kids” (What do they do at recess – play Toss the Enema?)
Siri Must be a Descendant of Freud
“Action set for Sat at noon” (Apparently someone got Viagra in his Christmas stocking.)
That’s it for this week, folks. Remember: spell well and sell!
